Sunday Good News Story: It's never to late to re-kindle that flame

Got an old flame from Junior High or High School that you never really forgot? Well as long as life lasts, apparently you have a shot to go back and make it happen. 

From MSNBC/Today: Fifty years after Karen Wilcox dumped her eighth-grade boyfriend, Mike Wilson, she married him. They tell TODAY's Jenna Wolfe that they kept in touch over the five decades after they met in junior high school. They both had two unsuccessful marriages prior to reuniting. 

On the one hand, this is very sweet. Love that endures over time, never as good as the first time and all that. On the other hand if you're telling me that the person I was meant to be with, I met in eighth grade? That's kind of scary. Congrats to Karen and Mike - third time's the charm?

...but I don't even remember anyone from eighth grade.

Something similar happened to my boss and her husband--they married at 19, divorced at 22, then remarried at 52!

Ironically, I was remembering some "nerdy boy" that adored me back during those times. Alas, he wasn't "cool enough" for the Gamma and I wasn't giving him the time of day. I wish I knew then how valuable the "nerd factor" was. LeSigh

My Mom and Pops are like this. They were "going together" in 7th grade, broke up and got back together 12 years later - I appreciate it.

I think the boy who asked me to the prom, (who I stupidly turned down) was to be the one. Oh well.

I surely hope this isn't the case with my life. One, I was almost a recluse, and based on the handful of people who have been in my life thus far, I'm not looking for most of them to swing back around. And the one person who I used to think would resurface I'm not sure we would ever be able to have a positive dating relationship.
